    “…acknowledging Ucore as the front-runner in this pivotal endeavor…highlighting their RapidSX™ Commercial Demonstration Plant in Kingston, Ontario where they have been separating heavy and light rare earths”.

    Maybe we could say Ucore is ‘in the running’ with e.g., Lynas? However, a US strategic $4 mills vs $258 mills for HRE (plus around $30 mills for LRE processing) might tilt the advantage towards…? Then, add the existing mine, contacts, skills and history, etc., of Lynas and…?

    Agreed, I am biased here as a shareholder.
